Anxiety test

This anxiety self-assessment test can help you to understand how you've been feeling recently and point you in the right direction for helpful advice and support.

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, worry and fear. When anxiety becomes problematic, these feelings are amplified, long-lasting and overwhelming.

This test is not intended to replace a medical consultation and you should speak to your GP or a therapist if you are concerned about your mental health.

If you are experiencing high levels of distress and need urgent crisis support please contact your GP or the Accident and Emergency department at your local hospital. Alternatively, you can call the Samaritans on 116 123
